I received the following question from Jane:

Hi Jessica, I am new to your podcasts but hoping to work my way through them slowly as I study French. I am very much enjoying them.

I have just listened to episode 6 (FYW 006 : “To demand” vs “Demander”: ) and have a question about agreement in the following sentence :

“Mon mari m’a demandée en mariage à Uluru.” Why do you use the -ée on “demandée”? Doesn’t this verb agree with your husband (“mon mari”)?

Here’s a great opportunity for a brush-up if you’re an intermediate or advanced learner of French!
